This resource pack for teachers of key stage 1 and 2 is based on the programme of study Using and Applying Mathematics and its corresponding attainment target. This is the area of National Curriculum mathematics which many teachers have found problematic, both as regards suitable material to use in the classroom and in carrying out everyday assessment.

Assess and progress responds to these difficulties by providing a range of classroom activities for children, supported by INSET modules which teachers can use to develop their assessment skills. By overseeing the children's classroom activities and working on the INSET modules with collagues, teachers familiarise themselves with Using and Applying Mathematics and gain the confidence to decide what counts as evidence of performance at each level of a key stage.
